I watch ‘A Christmas Carol’ every year in all of its guises, this is one of the best I have seen. Very clever use of props and stage management brought this to life. Well done to all involved

My husband and I took our 7 year old boy to see A Christmas Carol last night, and it was everything I had hoped it would be. The story has been one I have loved since I was little, and my husband too, so we really want to pass it on to our son. The production was outstanding, from the moment we arrived, we were met with warm mince pies and satsumas, wonderful music and a general feel of festive cheer and being involved. The acting was super, my favourites were Scrooge himself of course, Little Fan and Fred, but every single person on stage was wonderful to watch and to listen to. The music was beautiful and you'd have to be Scrooge yourself not to be warmed to the very heart by it. As you can tell, I loved it as did our son who thought it was the most magical thing he had ever seen. Wonderful stuff!

By far, the best production of a Christmas Carol that I’ve ever seen! I left completely delighted! I came all the way from California - and would do it again next year!!
